No, but i would trade Nazr for Dalembert. I'd even take Jefferson from the Celts.
Everyone here knows how I feel about AI.
He is fearless, unstoppable, plays with herat and passion even if he is hurting, he never gives up, sacrafices his body on plays consistently, doesn't know the meaning of quitting.
He would bring so much excitement to the palace. I can hear Mason now.
This would truly be a gem of a deal. MAKE THE DEAL JOE.
I'm all for it.
AI would shooting % will definitely increased. He will average more than 8 asst per game. All this in a PISTONS uniform.
in addition to the other arguments for the trade, i'd love this because i just love AI on the floor, he's absolutely inspiring to watch and, finally, i want guys in pistons uniform that i can get really excited about.
Sigh. I'd do it. We need to do something.
I also think we should go after a guy like Chris Kaman while he is still struggling if L.A. would give him up. I don't know what it would cost. Mohammed or Dice and a draft pick, or is that too much?
I think the team would be a lot more exciting with A.I. and Kaman and I think it would put us back in the hunt for the ship.
I'm not sure you can mix the plant eating dinosaurs with the meat eating ones and make for a happy cretaceous time. I think of Kamen as one of those big lumbering plant eating types - kind of scary when you get one going, but by and large content to graze in the paint and make use of large hindquarters. AI is more of the raptor type, fleet of foot and out for blood. And willing to take some pain in order to give out even more. Pair him with a fast big guy who can keep up with him and you got yourself a nice hunting pack.
Well, the carnivores gotta eat something, right? If the herbivore doesn't work out...
Problem is, that's some high priced rump roast. But hey, as long as it gets us a good carnivore I'm for it too.
TFD, Joe already tried to trade for Iverson once, clearly he liked him them.
Before he got CB? I stand corrected.
IMO I would never make that trade unless we just want to add points Chauncey is far more of a complete player, and AI does not fit into our style of basketball. But to be honest no 1 man superstar does. [sign]WELCOME TO DETROIT CITY[/sign]
I've said before a one year swap would be very interesting. Just to see what both could do in reversed situations.
I wouldn't trade C-Bill period.
It will be a very long time before the Pistons have another player hit 18 of 19 foul shots on the road in one game and most of them in the 4th quarter.
I don't understand what people have against C-Bill.
The fact is if the Pistons had a legitimate starting center, (Nazr is so bad that D. Davis is now getting close to 15 minutes a game. I still can't believe Joe. D. signed Mohammed for 5 years. That could turn out to be a bigger fiasco than the Loy Vaught signing) they would still be one of the top 2 or 3 teams in the league.
It seems they are using him wrong. He can carry his weight on O, but he won't get the ball enough. But he can't help enough on D to make us dominate. He was 2 for 2 the other night-100%- effective we could use more of that.
A nice comment in the FREEP regarding C-Bill's play during the winning streak.
PISTONS CORNER: Pistons welcome break from brutal schedule
I like CB and most nights I am glad to have him running the team. Then, like tonight, I see AI and my mouth waters.
He has to be one of the great talents of all time in this league. There seems to be nothing he cannot do and his history is that he does it almost every night and against almost anybody they throw at him.
I have not really appreciated him enough in the past mainly because he has been "the enemy", but I have to hand it to him.
There have not been many better.
45 pt. and a loss, he'll never learn.
He'll never learn what? How to get his GM to put some talent around him?
